I'd be thrilled if "a little oatmeal or barley" was actually the case with some of the so-called higher-quality foods, but sometimes the grains are the second or third ingredient, with fruits and vegetables thrown in so it looks "great" to us humans (we love what sounds like a healthy, complete meal!) but those things are useless nutritionally for cats. Weruva's second ingredient is potato starch. Soulistic's third is pumpkin. Sure, pumpkin is nice, it's fiber, helps digestion, and it's not a carcinogenic. But my cat isn't getting any nutrition from it, either.
I'm not happy with the by-products and other ingredients in FF either, but I'm not going to bash on Fancy Feast Classic when it's the only thing my 18-year-old will eat on certain days. Am I going to feed it to her as her only food? No. Would I feed it to any new cat I get in the future? No. If I was a poor college student who was subsisting on ramen myself, would I feed it to my cat versus, say, Friskies or Iams? Yes.
We do have to make personal choices in regards to cat food, and I'm okay with occasionally feeding Fancy Feast Classic to my geriatric cat rather than risk her not eating anything.
